We provide mentoring, tutoring, professional internship opportunities, leadership development seminars, and college-access support to high school students in Cambridge and Somerville.
Enroot is actively looking for mentors and tutors to meet weekly with our students. Volunteers meet with students for 1.5 hours per week over the course of the academic year.MENTOR: As a mentor, you are a role model, adviser, friend, and guide helping your mentee to dream big, set goals, and pursue them. Favorite activities include: going out for hot chocolate, watching a movie, playing basketball, working on a tough homework assignment, or visiting a college – it all depends on you and your mentee’s interests and needs. You will likely guide your mentee in the following areas: building positive relationships, exploring careers, planning higher education, and practicing English.TUTOR: As a tutor, you are a one-on-one academic resource for an immigrant high school student in our Enroot Program. Tutors help with homework, language skills, and study skills. We match you with a student based on the subject area(s) you feel comfortable tutoring. Our staff is on site during all tutoring sessions to support you.
